MS PowerPoint– How to set up recordings

Did you know you can set up recordings in MS Power point 2010? If you have a sound card, microphone, and speakers, you can record your PowerPoint presentation and capture voice narrations, and slide timings.

To turn on ‘Record Slide Show’, go to the ‘Slide show’ tab, and click the ‘Record Slide Show’ down arrow.

You have three options:

  • Start recording from beginning.
  • Start recording from Current Slide
  • Clear (This is greyed out unless you have previously recorded some slides. Be careful when choosing clear, as you can permanently delete your narrations or timings.)

A ‘Record Slide Show’ box will appear, check or uncheck the boxes for your recording. And click Start Recording.

At the top of the left corner of the slide, you can use the Recording took bar to:

  • Go to the next slide
  • Pause the recording
  • Re-record the current slide
